Disappointing for sure as there just aren't many contests in the middle / upper part of the SE. A little bit premature I think, as there were people planning to go who had not yet preregistered, or can not because they are not yet members. But I'm not in the CD's shoes having to answer to the club.

Well that sux. I don’t know when I have seen a contest cancelled for potential low attendance. I can understand not having another after having a poorly attended contest. I also surely understand the expense issue, but as a cd, I think that is a risk you accept when you agree to host. Sad to hear of this cancellation.

Where there's a will there's a way...
Huge thanks to Howard Mathis, Primo Rivera, and Winston Salem RC for stepping up and making sure we don't lose the contest weekend! For those who aren't aware, the Piedmont IMAC was cancelled, but fine folks at Winston Salem RC (Mocksville) have stepped up and there will be a contest there instead. Let's make sure we respond in force and turnout in numbers to support the event. http://www.mini-iac.org/Event-Details/PID/810
Thanks again for those who have scrambled and pulled together to make this happen.

My IMAC friends, As Ty mention WHERE THERE IS A WILL THERE IS A WAY!!!
The WILL was not to lose the weekend for the contest and new potential pilots.
The WAY! WOW! All I did was make a few phone calls and BAM! We now have a sanction event.

HUGE THANKS go to,
Howard Mathis and the Winston Salem club for letting us have the field
Steve Sides who will do the scoring
Jerry Hailey for getting the sanction in today
Doug Pilcher big help on getting the sanction approved TODAY

The common core here is the LOVE for aviation,

IMAC #ArtIntheSKY

Here is the sanction.
